    Either the violin, the flute, or the Hardanger fiddle. The last one is because I am biased.

    I want to find time to learn the flute myself, as the sound that comes out of it is just exquistively beautiful and calming.

    For me it's the bagpipes or the fiddle, for sure. Not many people like the pipes, though.

    I really didn't like it. It was like being demoted from heroic lead guitar to boring rhythm.
    But what really annoyed me was the requirement to read music in the alto clef.
    I was always taught music using the treble clef and bass clef, so I found this quite confusing. (I was having piano lessons at the same time).

    Anyway, as a keen pianist/keyboard player, my 2 favourites will be no surprise:
    1. A grand piano.
    2. A full scale cathedral organ.
    (Which is in the Guiness book of records as the largest musical instrument in the world. Ever.)

    Drums.. Not so much in the sense of mainstream music, but more in the military sense, There is nothing like the rat-a-tat-tat of a military march to get the blood going, and that to me is the most beautiful sounding instrument there is...But I would say that I'm a warmonger at heart
